The Pentecostal Church in Poland (Polish: Kościół Zielonoświątkowy w Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej) is a Pentecostal Christian denomination in Poland. With 24,000 adherents and 240 congregations,[1][2] it is the second largest Protestant church in Poland after the Evangelical-Augsburg Church. It is the largest Pentecostal denomination in Poland and a part of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship.[3]

The Kosciol Zielonoswiatkowy (a Pentecostal denomination) emerged from the United Evangelical Church of Poland, which consisted of five Protestant denominations during communism. It has three Bible schools with extension programs training about 150 students and facilitates several ministries. Assemblies of God workers labor alongside this Pentecostal Church and report that about 300 ministers now serve approximately 20,000 members and adherents in 191 churches and outstations. In addition, there is a church planting school that is currently starting 12 new churches in southwest Poland.

The Pentecostal Church in Poland is a member of Pentecostal European Fellowship and Biblical Society in Poland. Headquartered in the city of Warsaw, the Church publishes a magazine titled Chrześcijanin.
